Due to insurance regulations only players, coaches, and Dixie Officials are allowed on the playing field and/or the dugouts. Nobody is allowed to be on the field for practice or games that is not on a Hattiesburg Dixie Boys roster. The only time this is waived is in the event of an injury to a player, coach or umpire. This policy will be enforced this season. We have no choice due to insurance and safety reasons.
Hattiesburg 14's are the 2014 Dixie Boys World Series Champions. They are only the 3rd team to win both World Series titles. Hattiesburg had to defeat the host team, Bossier City, twice Weds to win the title. They pulled out a 10-3, 11 inning, 4 hour and 15 minute win in game one, that saw on field temps in the 110 degree range, a packed house and hostile crowd. The 2nd game was 4-4 going to the bottom of the 6th when we struck for 1 run on a Jo Jo Gray home run. The game and World Series ended with us throwing the tying run out at the plate on a single to center field.
